Hey Eric,

why should you get the ear-flaps. After parking you just press the small button next to the mirror buttons and the mirrors fold automatically close to the car. No need for ear-flaps. :cheers:

I think you're referring to your RAV-4, Mike -- we didn't get 80s like that over here -- :slap:

Eric,

now I know why the Landcruisers are so cheap in the US. Because you have nothing inside. This button is here a absolut must when you want to pass other cars in narrow streets. I just press the button the mirrors fold and I can pass in mm the other car or wall. After passing I press again and the mirrors go back in the old position. :cheers:

Car Cover? WTF, its a truck, :flipoff2: if you are concerned with the sun, tint and get a dash pad. Unless the thing is going to sit for extended periods or you have nasty crap falling on it (park elsewhere) I would think its going to be a bigger target in the mall parking lot.

At first, I read this thread and saw AsiaRider's post. Then I realized it this was from 2003. Anybody ever hear from that Mike? He seems to have disappeared after the Tsunami disaster last year. :frown:

As for car covers, www.calcarcover.com makes custom car covers for people with bull bars, top mounted lighting, rear spare tire carriers, spoilers or what have you.

I had no problems when I was in Seattle keeping a vehicle outside without a cover. But in SoCal it seems like my car will melt without one... Seriously though, those UV rays like to eat a car's finish and interior it seems.. I've seen many a vehicle with sun damage and fading... Something I don't want for my FZJ80.. What can I say.. it' the Pink Panties...

Hey why not cover your Cruiser? I just bought one last night and plan on keeping it at least 10 years maybe more. Why not protect the truck's finish? It only makes sense.
